Laser Therapy In Knoxville

What Is Laser Therapy In Knoxville?

LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser is also known as photobiomodulation. It entails the use of specific wavelengths of light to generate a photochemical response to help repair damaged or dysfunctional tissue.

How Does Laser Therapy In Knoxville Work?

The LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser works by creating an increase in blood supply, bringing in oxygen to the cells. It stimulates the lymphatic system, pulling swelling and inflammation from the area. Through LightForce Class IV Laser Therapy, we stimulate the body’s fundamental energy unit, ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), production within the cells. This process enhances their ability to function optimally, providing a renewed sense of energy. Moreover, the treatment effectively disrupts the pain reflex, granting you immediate relief from discomfort.

LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate recovery from a wide range of acute and chronic clinical conditions. Significant reduction in swelling has been noted as well as tissues are better able to move fluids out through lymphatic drainage pathways.

Cleared by the FDA in 2003, LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser has become the standard of care for many musculoskeletal injuries. Class IV LASERs can penetrate over 4 inches into the deep musculoskeletal tissue. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the problem and the length of time the patient has been affected by it. Some conditions may be resolved with as few as one treatment. However, chronic and/or deep-seated conditions may take as many as 10 treatments.

LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser technology has been recently endorsed by professional organizations such as the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP). There are no known side effects from LightForce Class IV Therapy Laser and the results are long lasting.

I’ve been to a lot of physical therapy providers that offered a variety of therapies but only Marino physiotherapy gave me the benefit of hydrotherapy and other forms of therapy with great ease. They are professional, effective, and patient. What a perfect place to heal, move forward or least delay the limitation of injuries or illnesses. I  actually looked forward to therapy. It is formatted without losing the human touch. It has improved the quality of my life. I have seen them treat difficult cases with ease and kindness. They are a gem in the healthcare business.

I’ve just returned to Marino Physiotherapy after straining my low back gardening. They really know their stuff, and the atmosphere they provide is that of a cheerful helping community free of frenetic bustle. They have guided me through the aftermath of a stroke, hip surgery, low back instability with its subsequent nerve pain, and neck and shoulder problems. They take the time to really listen and determine the best course of treatment and supportive home exercises. I trust them and recommend them whole heartedly!
